Hi aynaku,<br />
<br />
Hope today is going better for you. Being alone in a new place is a huge challenge. For me, I try to think of it as a chance to really learn about the place where I'm living. I try to learn how to cook some local dishes I like, and learn about the local history. For me, it is frustrating to "try" to make friends. I usually get involved with a job or I volunteer, then I end up with friends eventually. This is easier than setting out to find a friend. <br />
<br />
By the way, I'm in Hawaii. I've never had food from PI til I got here. Can you tell me hoe to make pork guisantes or chicken adobo?

I understand that is difficult to be a soldier and u know we got missions to complete for our nation.You feel lonely cuz u probably u feel anxiety cuz ur husband is not with but I think when got a chance He calls u back cuz he loves u...... I advise to u be patient I know is not easy specially <br />
If u are living in another country. take care.....My best wisches... Robert
